Tottenham vs. Sunderland 1-0

Here are the line-ups for last Sunday:

  • Tottenham: Lloris, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Walker, Davies, Dier, Dembele, Sissoko, Alli, Eriksen, Kane.
  • Sunderland: Pickford, Djilobodki, Kone, Van Aanholt, Manquillo, Rodwell, Kirchoff, Cattermole, Januzaj, Defoe, Pienaar.

Possession was 72%-28% in favor of the Spurs. Tottenham had 31 goal attempts, out of which 22 were off target and 9 on target. Sunderland had only 6 attempts, 2 on target and 4 off target. Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game after 59 minutes but he was later taken off the field on a stretcher because he had badly twisted his ankle.

The guys from Sunderland were quite good on defense in the first 45 minutes but they crumbled down as the game advanced. It is obvious that the Spurs dominated the game overall but they had a hard time getting the ball past Pickford. The offense was not their strongest point although they had a couple great shots. Sunderland manager David Moyes said “Pienaar had a great chance and we probably need to score any chance we get.”

How should I bet on their future games?

The teams are scheduled for a rematch on January 31st, 2017. Let us present you the facts and you will answer that question on your own.

Tottenham has not lost a league game against Sunderland since April 2010, making a total of 12 (now 13) wins in 6 years. The last time one of Sunderland’s goalkeepers finished a game against Tottenham without allowing them to score was in 1980 when Chris Turner was defending the goal. Ever since, the Spurs scored 49 goals in 22 games against Sunderland. Now if we count their most recent confrontation, the total adds up to 50 goals in 23 games.

Jordan Pickford who appeared on Sunday for Sunderland had 4 premier league appearances and conceded 10 goals. You should know the Fraser Digby has the record for the most goals conceded in their first 5 appearances in Premier League.

Defoe, the striker of Sunderland scored in 6 consecutive away appearances. Van Persie is the only other player who did a better run in the entire history of Premier League. He scored in 9 consecutive away appearances. Van Persie was playing at Arsenal at the time.

During the years he played at Tottenham, Defoe score 91 goals in Premier Leagues. Teddy Sheringham is the the only one to have scored more goals for the club.

In spite of being given 5 penalty shots against the Spurs, Sunderland managed to score only one goal. This is quite a low conversion rate. In fact, 20% is the lowest rate for one team against another.

Now you have the facts. It’s intuition that makes the difference between winning or losing a bet. Happy betting!
